At a precise distance, reflected sunlight from a mirror projects a focused image of the sun onto printing paper pinned to the wall.  Moving clouds appear as shifting shadows across its bright surface and dynamically effect the ambient light level of the gallery space.  Heat waves stream across the surface of the sun projection in fluid torrents of whirls and eddies.
